Okpara out of Shield

Calcutta: With just a day to go before they begin their IFA Shield campaign, East Bengal suffered a major blow as Uga Okpara was ruled out of the competition due to a hamstring injury, on Monday.

There were already doubts over his participation in the tournament, as Okpara wasn’t 100 per cent fit. He also gave Monday’s practice session a skip.

All’s not well in the Mohun Bagan camp too, as Okolie Odafe is likely to miss their first match — against Bangladesh’s Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club, on Thursday.
